‘Google of accommodations’ raises $1.1 million seed funding
Accommodation search engine start-up AllTheRooms has raised $1.1 million in series seed financing led by the New York Angels, an organisation of business investors.
The New York-based site claims it can save travellers hours trawling numerous different sites because it offers a comprehensive selection of all accommodation types in each destination.
The firm was founded by former investment banker Joseph DiTomaso, and Bill Beckler, who most recently was head of innovation at Travelocity-owned Lastminute.com.
DiTomaso said: “Until now, no site has provided customers with all the accommodations available for a given travel destination. Our primary benefit is in our comprehensive search capabilities.
